Thanks for all the replies guys. Since my question was really vague, I'll try to be more specific.

I had heard about throttle body slide valves on high-end racers, and seeing the description and pictures is great. Holy cow are they expensive!

What I was really wondering, is if slide valves were ever used for intake/exhaust in the heads. I can't see this being possible, but was just curious.

Or- are there are other ways of getting the charge into the cylinders besides traditional valves or direct injection.

I'm just curious here, not trying to build anything.
